Sala a Croce Greca

By TrevBatWCC    
The Vatican Museum is home to several museums comprising of different sections from different periods and regions. The Greco-Roman Pio-Clementine Museum contains several rooms - here is part of the Sala a Croce Greca (Hall of the Greek Cross).
This area was roped off, so it was easy to compose the shot without stray bodies wandering into view, but it was still tricky shooting hand-held at 1/10 second whilst being jostled! Wink

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Photomatix Pro and Photoshop Elements 11

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

This is a great shot and excellent processing. I'm really impressed with all of your images but the Rome ones are of particular interest as I've just booked a trip to there in April (my first ever visit) and your work is a real inspiration. Clearly though I'm going to have to invest in a good quality wide angle lens - something that has been sadly missing from my camera bag. Now I just have to persuade the good lady that it's a necessary investment Grin

Thanks for the wonderful work
